Gone on Spearing Trip 26th-31st

25 posts in this topic

Its that time of year again, making my way up with Central Bassman to Andrusia for our spearing trip that we take every year. Sounds like the water is clear again, but there is a ton of ice (13-16) and ton of snow (foot). This is a awesome spearing trip that we take every year. If anyone is going to be around the area, look me up, black Canvas Craft Northlander!

Hope you all have a great X mas and ill chat with you all when i get back!

report from Andrusia

We got to the lake around 11 today, after driving in some nice weather and great roads smile

There is so much snow up here in the lakes its tough to get out. We had 3 wheelers and 2 cats running around to get the 7 houses out and get everyone situated.

As im sure most of you know, we set up grandpa and the old man, and the young guys like us, have to set up last. Dad seen a few little fish but passed on them, and Grandpa see 3 fish, which one was about 4 lbs, but didnt get the chance to spear it.

We are going to be hitting it pretty hard tommorrow all day. Dont have to worry about setting up the houses or doing anything like that. Can drive out and relax in the house all day.

Ill have a report tommorrow being that we have the blackberry hooked up to the lab top!

What a day a day makes. Weather was horrible. Misting most of the day till about 1:30, and then the sun came out and we enjoyed the NICE weather.

As far as fished speared, I seen 17 fished today from 9-4. I ended up spearing a 25, 27, and a 37.5 incher.

I am trying to get the photo up of the 37.5 but the internet is getting slow and slow here, so i will try and get it up if i can. If not, will do it when i get back.

ya, there is some out there. The problem that you have right now is there is soooo much pressure on the ice, and everytime you cut a hole, the water comes up!

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
